Decoupage Oyster Shells – Kimberly Kieffer-Brown

Decoupage Oyster Shells – Kimberly Kieffer-Brown

Join local artist Kim Brown and learn how to decoupage oyster shells using your choice of design from a paper napkin*. Decoupage is the art of gluing a paper design to a surface to create the impression of something that was painted on.

You will decoupage two oyster shells, edge them with gold leaf paint, and add a loop of wooden beads to each one. The finished products can be used as ornaments, wine bottle charms, napkin rings, tabletop decorations, or any way your inspiration suggests! Keep one and gift one (perfect hostess gifts or Easter basket surprises) if you wish!

Kim Brown is a Lewes-based artist who is best known for her work creating Sailor’s Valentines, which are intricate mosaics made from tiny seashells. She also engages in other forms of shell and sea glass art and loves to paint, as well.

*A variety of paper napkins will be available for you to choose from (or you are welcome to bring your own if there is a design you really like). You may wish to bring an N95-type mask for the gold leaf painting part of the process.
